The sale took place in the most difficult of market circumstances and as vendors we had many anxious moments, however Chris’ upbeat, reassuring and professional attitude and approach was most comforting. He always made himself available, and contactable, even outside of normal working hours. He constantly kept us informed of developments, often on a daily basis, and we felt he adopted a very professional approach to our situation. On the basis of the service we received, we would be more than happy to recommend his services to any prospective seller.”

“We found the entire sales process with Marshall White to be very professional. The photo shoot was completed promptly and the photographs of our home were of the highest quality. The advertising campaign was a success. We appreciated the myriad of cost options available to us regarding the marketing of our home—and, we valued the flexibility to engage all forms of print and online media.
During the campaign we appreciated being regularly updated on the levels of interest in our property by Chris and Rebecca. This gave us a comfort level during the process that everything was going to plan. Both Chris and Rebecca’s friendly demeanours, helpfulness, honesty and understanding of the residential property market were the key determining factors of why we were able to achieve the terrific result that ensued.
Importantly, we were very impressed with the auction day process. Chris and Rebecca kept us fully informed and at ease—whilst Antony’s auction manner, professionalism and ability to engage a crowd on all levels was acknowledged by everyone in attendance. These were crucial factors contributing to the success we experienced on the day.
We would highly recommend the services of Chris, Rebecca and Antony—they make an informed, professional and friendly team.”
